Dr Pradeep Bansal is the one who personally administers Botox injections in Zaragoza to her patients. Although the Botox treatment is a 15-minute treatment and seems simple compared to any cosmetic surgery such as rhinoplasty, the Botox injection must be applied in a correct, effective and above all safe way, and this requires training and experience.
Despite the fact that Botox is a minimally invasive treatment, the Bansal’s clinic considers that the patient should receive totally personalized attention and care as in any other cosmetic surgery. It must be taken into account that the face has 43 individual muscles, and it will be of vital importance for the treatment and for optimal and longer-lasting results that the person in charge of administering the treatment in our clinic in Shalimar Bagh knows which is the most appropriate.

What should we know about Botox?
Botulism is the disease caused by the toxin generated by a bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum, which does not need oxygen to proliferate and develops in certain foods stored in cans in poor conditions.
Botox is not an active poison, it is a protein that weakens and inactivates the muscles and that contains this toxin in its composition. Therefore, what we achieve with Botox is similar to muscle paralysis, but in a controlled manner.
Botox® for cosmetic applications is used in small amounts (30-70 U.), which gives it a high safety margin if we consider that to achieve toxic effects, more than 2,000 units would have to be injected at one time. After the muscle has been injected, its effect is not noticeable until 15 days have passed. Keep in mind that about 60 units are needed for a facial wrinkle treatment, very low levels compared to those that can actually cause intoxication.
The effects of Botox® only affect the muscle, and it does not affect the central nervous system or any other part of the body in any way, even if it is accidentally injected into a nerve or blood vessel.
The safety of Botox is complete, because in addition the mobility of the muscle is completely recovered over time, it does not have side effects in this sense.
